Battle of Ideas 2012, The Barbican Centre Sunday 21 October, 6.30pm until 7.30pm, Conservatory Battle for Social Justice At first glance, the monarchy of 2012 seems to be in rude health. The Diamond Jubilee has been not so much an occasion for jingoistic national fervour as for quiet satisfaction that we live in a stable, free democracy that much of the world's population can only envy. The Queen is viewed with almost unalloyed respect for the personal qualities she has brought to her role, and ...

Battle of Ideas 2013Kim Jong-un’s North Korea may call for a ‘merciless, sacred, retaliatory war’ against the US imperialists and South Korean ‘puppet warmongers’ it blames for inching the Korean peninsula towards thermonuclear war. But China, despite distancing itself from its communist neighbour’s antics, also feels itself threatened by the US. In the East and South China Seas, across the Pacific, and even in its relations with India, China feels encircled, whatever successes are a...

Yet in a speech in Munich in February 2011, Cameron had announced the 'doctrine of state multiculturalism' had failed in Britain by encouraging 'different cultures to live separat...

[audio]Occupy: illusory radicalism? - Institute of Ideas
From its beginnings in New York's Zucotti Park last Autumn, there is little doubt that the Occupy movement has been highly successful at grabbing a lot of media attention. Indeed such has been the focus that not only did Time magazine see fit to name the 'protester' as its Person of the Year 2011, the American Dialect Society chose 'occupy' as its word of the year. And while there has been some criticism of the various occupations in the US and the UK, the coverage has been largely favourable...

'Pop-up' groups of residents appeared unprompted on the streets almost before the smoke had cleared, armed with brooms to clean up the mess (although they went their separate w...
